Late summer treasures + WIP updates

My excuse for posting is to share a few photos from today that reflect the season. Late summer/early fall in Korea is my favorite time of year. It might be a season all its own, since this transition time is much milder than high summer, yet the leaves have only just begun to look a little rusty at the edges, and the evenings aren’t yet too cool. The pivot to fall means the humidity has thankfully lifted, monsoons are heading out, but the cloud formations and filtered light are still magnificent.

I’m looking forward to tucking in the final threads of several long projects in the coming weeks. The hood on the Mama Bear cardigan is freshly done, and now all that’s left is to complete the front edges. I may’ve mentioned in my last post that I’ve decided not to do buttons on this one.

I’ve also just completed my first practice mitred square for a “swoncho” (sweater/poncho) that I’ve been waiting to make since last winter. It will be made using a fun gradient yarn by Lion Brand called “Scarfie,” which is the same yarn I used to make a tasseled pocket shawl some time back.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll try to squeeze in one more post before the calendar page turns.
